Mr JONES (NEWCASTLE, VICTORIA) - I preface a question to the

Minister for Social Services by stating that recently when an age pensioner couple buried their dependent fourteenyearold son their application for funeral benefit of £10 was rejected. Is the Minister aware of this policy? If not, will he remedy the matter? If he is aware of it, will he tell me what the difference is between paying £10 towards the funeral expenses of a pensioner and paying £10 towards the funeral expenses of a pensioner's dependent son?
